Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine and Dierks Bentley Partner for 2015 Sounds of Summer Tour

Ole Smoky® Tennessee Moonshine will be the “’Shine of Summer” as it continues its reign as the Official Moonshine Sponsor of platinum-selling singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley’s 2015 SOUNDS OF SUMMER TOUR! The 40-city run will kick off June 5 in Raleigh, N.C. and continue through the summer with friends Kip Moore, Maddie & Tae and Canaan Smith stacking the lineup.

Ole Smoky and Bentley have a multi-year partnership across tour, media and digital platforms, and the brand spent 2014 making appearances on the road with Bentley as a featured spirit in various stops along last year’s RISER tour. Ole Smoky’s Mini Holler, a bar on wheels modeled after the famous distillery in Gatlinburg, Tenn., has been a big hit with country music fans serving up Ole Smoky signature cocktails. The mega popular Bentley has been known to enjoy top-selling flavor White Lightnin’ straight out of the jar with backstage guests. The Mini Holler will be in place at select cities on this tour, dates and details will be listed on http://www.olesmoky.com.

“When I was getting started in Nashville, I totally immersed myself in the bluegrass community where moonshine is about as important as banjos and fiddles,” joked Bentley. “It’s been cool to see that world collide with the tailgate scene out in the parking lots at these amphitheater show. The fans have definitely embraced Ole Smoky…it’s the perfect start to a rowdy summer night!”
